Leonardo DiCaprio May Direct Someday, Says Clint Eastwood

We caught up with Clint Eastwood at the LACMA Gala in his honor this weekend and asked him if Leonardo DiCaprio, star of Eastwood’s new movie J. Edgar, might follow in his directorial footsteps someday. After all, don’t you think Leo would kick some serious ass behind the camera? Clint, an iconic actor-turned-director, charmed our pants off by complimenting our outfit, and then offered up this tidbit about a future Director DiCaprio: “A lot of actors, myself included, like to move to to that thing. … I think he would like to try it someday.”

Sounds promising! Clip above.
